Meet with Councillors and senior Council staff in your community

Published on 03 April 2024


A series of conversations with the community will take place across the MidCoast from April to June, giving residents a chance to meet with senior Council staff and Councillors. 

Anyone can attend a Community Conversation. While Council staff will present information, there will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.

Community Conversations will be held at 15 different locations from Coopernook in the north to Hawks Nest in the south and west to Gloucester and Stroud.

With local government elections to be held later this year, this will be the only opportunity for this Council to hold the Community Conversations in 2024.

Mayor Claire Pontin said the Community Conversations were part of Council’s commitment to continually improving service delivery. 

“These sessions allow us to hear directly from community members,” said Mayor Pontin.

“They also provide an opportunity for the community to better understand the work of local government.

“Council plays a big role in our daily lives, so there’s a lot to be gained from coming along.”

There’s no need to book. Simply turn up on the day at the location most convenient for you – and let your friends and family know it’s on!
